On July 20th, if everything goes as planned Jeff Bezos will go to space on the first passenger flight of Blue Origin, the privately held company that he founded.
He’ll be adding to a list of bragging rights that includes being one of the richest people on earth.
It also includes founding Amazon, laying the groundwork for the global e-commerce economy now worth more than $10 trillion, and giving rise to the $305 billion global cloud computing market by renting out spare servers.
More importantly, he’s going to be giving us an enormous chance for massive profits in the space travel industry.
I believe this flight will be a big catalyst for the coming era of space travel expected to be worth $800 billion in roughly the next decade.
Today, I’m going to reveal a great way to cash in on this new industry with a stock that has is roughly doubling the market’s returns…
Internet satellites launched into orbit by rockets that can return back to earth in nine minutes – that’s not a passage from a science fiction novel.
It’s what SpaceX did on March 24…showcasing an emerging technology with high growth potential…that can make you a lot of money.
Right now, 74 countries have some kind of space program, and 14 of them are capable of space launches. From tourism to space-based systems that blockchain technology and 5G are dependent to run on, there is a growing need for rockets to make that all possible.
Even the United Arab Emirates, a nation the size of South Carolina, is jumping into the space game.
The UAE’s Mars probe successfully orbited the red planet and is sending back pictures. Known as the Hope Probe, its mission is to create the first complete portrait of the Martian atmosphere.
This increased activity is one of the reasons why Morgan Stanley projects that, by 2040, the space sector will be worth $1.1 trillion.
Now, some companies are private and you can’t invest in them.
While others simply don’t deserve your hard-earned money.
That’s why I wanted to make sure you saw this before the weekend.
Because one company I’ve been watching closely just got even better thanks to a $4.4 billion acquisition.
If you just looked at the headlines, you’d think this is the absolute worst time to invest in anything related to nuclear power.
After all, Big Media has been giving us a steady diet of stories about the benefit to the planet found in green energy.
Don’t get me wrong. I have recommended solar and related stocks in the past. The issue confronting us is that right now we don’t have nearly enough large, industrial-grade storage systems for wind or solar power.
Which brings me back around to a company that is set to double its stock, not by avoiding nuclear power, but by gladly embracing it.
That’s a good thing because right now as we speak roughly 55 nuclear power plants are being built around the world. And just the equipment part of the sector is worth $67.2 billion.
A Special Note from Michael: If there is one thing that's crystal clear, it's that cannabis industry has established itself as an essential part of the economy, even if the federal government won't admit it yet. Altogether, that means that a premier...
Just try buying a house or renting an apartment these days without visiting the websites of Zillow Inc. (Nasdaq: Z) or Trulia Inc. (Nasdaq: TRLA).
Eighty-three million visitors checked in on Zillow in June, while 54 million visited Trulia – without much overlap between the two.
It’s one heck of a business opportunity. And that’s why Zillow and Trulia late last month agreed to merge in a $3.5 billion deal that creates the world’s biggest real estate player on the Web.
As big as that blockbuster was, however, it’s still not enough to lock down the market.
In a recent survey of potential home buyers, the National Association of Realtors trade group found that 74% were planning to use the Internet to search for a new house. And according to the media analysts at Borrell Associates, from September 2012 to September 2013, more than half of all real estate advertising, or $13 billion, was spent online – and at that level, real estate is the No. 1 spender in online advertising.
The bottom line: There’s still plenty of room for a host of online real estate specialists – especially for players that offer services the Zillow/Trulia cartel doesn’t have.
We’ve identified the perfect challenger. In fact, we told you about it three months before the merger.
The New Space Race is still in its very early stages but a particular small-cap maker of rocket engines is already generating an amazing amount of thrust.
Here’s the thing. While the stocks of the major U.S. aerospace ventures have generated miniscule returns over the past year, shares of this California firm have soared by nearly 105%.
And that’s just a start.
Indeed, the shares of this company experienced a 6% surge in a single day earlier this week when billionaire investor Mario Gabelli told viewers of the popular CNBCSquawk Box program that this company’s shares could double from here.
